Can anyone recommend any good apps for asthma?

I searched the android market and there are hundreds that all look pretty similar!

Does anyone use any that they would recommend? Preferably with a peak flow chart since I keep losing the book!

Thanks :)

Thanks, I've downloaded the app and it's really useful and very easy to use! I like how it takes you through the set up at the start.

Can I make a little suggestion though? It would be really useful to have a peak flow graph on the app too!

Thanks :)

I use one called AsthmaTrack by Danger Down though that's on Apple - not sure if they have an Android version as well?

tbh it has some things I'd change - it has too many fields really and comes out so long the cons doesn't want to see it as it's epic, but does a good PF chart and, usefully, an inhaler puffs chart which for me is much more useful for me as my PF is not that helpful (on the plus side, this means I no longer have to track it regularly, woohoo!)

Would be interested to see the AUK one - is there an Apple version planned? Am curious about how you developed it and wondering what patient input there was, as I always feel the ones I use have never really asked asthmatics what we want out of these apps - they always seem to have features I never use and features I want but which it doesn't have, or it doesn't really work with the way I've been asked to record symptoms.

I'd agree that it's preferable to have the PF chart on the same app as everything else so you can record everything in one place.
